Pure Storage today announced that FlashBlade has achieved the AWS Outposts Ready designation, part of the AWS Service Ready Program. Fully tested and supported, FlashBlade for AWS Outposts delivers a hybrid cloud solution with all-flash performance, cloud scalability, and operational simplicity to accelerate modern applications and break down IT silos.
With the validated integration of FlashBlade with AWS Outposts, AWS customers can now leverage a low-latency, high-performance unified fast file and object platform with native Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) capabilities in tandem with AWS services, APIs, and tools — all with simplified management and container capabilities in their own datacenter. This solution will enable use cases such as artificial intelligence (AI), modern analytics, DevOps, rapid restore, and next-generation applications that require real-time response and high-throughput, in addition to satisfying data sovereignty, compliance, and local-processing requirements.
“As our customers navigate the demands of new and emerging applications, we are committed to delivering innovation and partnerships that support their hybrid cloud priorities,” said Matt Burr, General Manager, FlashBlade, Pure Storage. “We are proud to be a part of the AWS Outposts Ready program and deliver a hybrid cloud solution that delivers on the principles of flexibility and agility that both FlashBlade and AWS are built on.”
Through the AWS Outposts Ready program, FlashBlade delivers: Performance, Consolidation and Simplicity.
This announcement is the latest step in extending how Pure and AWS work together to serve customers’ modern data needs, now bringing AWS APIs and services closer to their on-premises applications. Customers can also leverage Pure Cloud Block Store for AWS, a cloud-native solution delivering seamless data mobility, resilience, and a consistent experience, powered by Pure’s Purity software. Cloud Block Store is specifically optimized to run on top of AWS infrastructure and provide enterprise data services similar to the user experience provided by FlashArray, FlashBlade or through Pure as-a-Service and is available in AWS Marketplace.
FlashBlade is generally available and supported for AWS customers via AWS Outposts.
